"I have the Atlantis concert DVD. It is great.I thought I might like this DVD too. So I read the reviews on this site.Unlike one of the other reviewers who said the sound quality was poor I found it to be exceptional. I am talking about the Dolby 5.1 track. This DVD really makes use of the back speakers!One or more reviewers said the volume was low. I found the volume level to be perfect on 12 of 13 songs. Only one needed a boost of 2 clicks on my remote--it was one of the concert videos.The other reviews said the image quality was outstanding. I found the image quality was outstanding on about 2/3 of the DVD. Other segments were sort of hazy. But I think the haziness was intended. It looks like it was to create a dream-like effect. I think I'd prefer all of it to be nice and sharp though. That being said, I am not disappointed with how it was done.Like one of the other reviewers, I agree having both English and Spanish subtitles is a terrific idea. I can sort of follow the Spanish subtitles (maybe 30-50% of it) since I know some Portuguese.Four of the songs from the Atlantis DVD reappear on this DVD. Three of them have entirely different imagery to go with them so that is quite enjoyable. One is identical to what's on the Atlantis DVD, but at least I get those great subtitles!Overall, I am very happy with this DVD."
A lot of fun packed in one video!!

"I was soo happy to find this video. From her older temas in Spanish, Abriendo Puertas, Tres Deseos to her latest. I was never able to see those videos for my favorite songs, i was so excited to see them and keep them. Including the duets w/ So pra and Alejandro Ferndandez. Could it get any better...???? I love the cuts in between the videos. They are pretty interesting. Definentely a video to add to your collection."

"This is a truly excellent collection of Gloria's best Spanish-language videos, and live performances. The collection is a visual feast, blending gorgeous colours, and exciting and upbeat original videos. 'Que Siga..' captures 'La Glo' at what she does best... captivating the public. You will NOT be disappointed by this purchase in any way. I guarantee it!"
A Must for Gloria fans, even if technically not real great.

"Anyone who loves Gloria Estefan will want this DVD. It is a collection of some of her best songs from her Spanish language CD's and others. Some are concert clips, others are music videos. Some of my favorites include "No Me Dejes de Querer" featuring some great looking Cuban men and some really hot moves. "Oye" is a great dance stage clip. T"res Deseos" features a carnival scene which is very cute. The highlights are perhaps her duet with Alejandro Fernandez, very romantic and gorgeous (She doesn't look like she's acting here, and who could blame her?!); and Con Los Anos Que me Quedan, a very beautiful black and white 40's montage. This song is truly beautiful and moving, and this treatment is very touching. In between each item is some "behind the scenes" footage. A lot of people are finding this annoying, but I think it's fun.Now the downside. From a directorial point of view the use of slow motion and jerky camera movements is overdone. Sometimes it looks like the motion is running too slow. I was wondering if something was wrong with the DVD. I do not to make too much of this, the quality is by no means terrible, but the sharpness, color and clarity of the DVD could be better. Nevertheless, I enjoy this DVD immensely. Gloria is one of my favorite artists, whom I respect enormously for her promotion of Latin music, language and culture. Never marketed as a mere sex symbol or "babe", she is very beautiful and enjoyable to watch. With husband Emilio and the best musicians, arrangers around, she has created a musical product which I think will stand the test of time. Moreover, she seems to surround herself with the most beautiful men everywhere she goes!"
